Description

These little cookies have wonderful flavor! They can be made gluten-free and sugar-free and can be whipped together in a matter of minutes! Healthy, easy and delicious! My kind of yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Gluten Free Or Regular Rolled Oats
  • ½ cups Oat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ cups Natural Salted Peanut Butter
  • ¼ cups Unsweetened Applesauce
  • ⅓ cups Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 drops Young Living Thieves Essential Oil (optional)
  • ½ bags Cinnamon Chips, 10 Ounce Bag

Preparation

In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, oat flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. If you don’t have oat flour you can substitute with white whole wheat flour (though it will not be gluten free then). Or you can make your own by placing 3/4 cups oats in a blender or food processor and blending until it resembles coarse flour.

In a seperate bowl using a hand or stand mixer, mix together peanut butter, applesauce, maple syrup, vanilla and Thieves oil if using, until well combined.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until well blended. Then mix in the cinnamon chips if using.

Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Continue until all dough is rolled into balls. You can place them together as closely as you like because these are not going to be baked. Place cookie sheet in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour, just until cookies are firm. Don’t be afraid to eat a few on the way to the fridge!

These were very tasty. I didn’t add the maple syrup. I took them to work and they devoured them!
